Hi SAP Builders!

This is a follow up blog to Tips to add your SAP Build Apps application to different BTP environments - Part 1 Part 2, and Part 3 here I will continue to showcase 'how to add your deployed SAP Build Apps application to different environments in SAP BTP (Business Technology Platform)'.

In Part 4, let's focus on how to do this when the required services (SAP Build Apps, SAP Build Work Zone, advanced edition) are running in different subaccounts in SAP BTP (either within the same Global account or in different Global accounts).

Consult the solution diagram in Part 3 for additional reference. The prerequisites* mentioned in Part 3 also applies to SAP Build Work Zone, advanced edition.

Integrate your SAP Build Apps application to SAP Build Work Zone, advanced edition

Preparations before integration!

  • Ensure that the SAP Build Work Zone, advanced edition is available in the list of subscriptions and is accessible.

  • Publish it.

Launch your SAP Build Apps application at runtime

When we configure our SAP Build Apps application as a URL application and launch it at runtime, we will be prompted to login. This is expected behaviour as the SAP Build Apps service is running in a different Subaccount and is essential for metering.

If this is not desired, then configure the Default IDP for your organization to enable Single Sign On (SSO) login automatically.

      With this, I hope that you could also bookmark your deployed SAP Build Apps application (from a different Subaccount) to your SAP Build Work Zone, advanced edition (in this Subaccount) and use it successfully.

Disclaimer: Bookmarking is a work around approach to use the SAP Build Apps application and may not always function optimally. Yet we are sharing this 'Know-how' as SAP Build Apps services is currently not supported in all data centres and accessing SAP Build Apps across different subaccounts (either within the same Global account or in different Global accounts) is a possible use case.
